group led the hours long siege in benghazi, libya. the militants were apparently enraged by a cheaply made online film considered offensive to islam. just last hour one libyan leader joined the international chorus in condemning the tack. >> translator: we apologize to the u.s. and to the american people, to the government and also to the rest of the world for what happened yesterday. and at the same time, we expect the world to cooperate with us in order to confront to what is meant out of this kind of cowardice, criminal act. >> that is the libyan ambassador -- i'm sorry, libyan prime minister. cnn foreign aaffairs reporter elise labott is at the state department. you've known ambassador christopher for years. tell us about him. >> carol, what can i say? he was considered, really, at the state department the cream of the crop in terms of diplomatic foreign service officers. this was not a -- we're seeing him in a pinstripe suit right there. he's not really what you consider a pinstripe diplomat, sitting in his office. he was out in the field, working with all sectors of libyan socie
-u.s. demonstrators marched on the headquarters of the main islamist militia group in benghazi, libya today. they pulled down the militia flag there and torched a vehicle holding pro u.s. signs. now to a story that critics say is already a foreign policy scandal. we're getting a clearer picture of what really happened on september 11, at the u.s. mission in benghazi. the politics of what some see as a coverup. we have fox team coverage tonight. chief washington correspondent james rosen has the latest time line. we begin with ed henry on the continuing spin psychofrom the obama administration. good evening. >> good evening. new details emerge in the story keeps changing. republicans are stepping up the attack on the president's credibilit. >> reporter: another day, another version of what went down in libya two weeks ago. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. >> the confusion started september 12 in a president obama rose gar dan remarks. >> no act of terrorism will shake the great nation. >> despite the reference to terrorism, top officials spent the next week insisting it
not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for our country. we have seen the heavy assault on our post in benghazi bad took lives of those brave men. we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless. it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen, and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the dictator for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days

, where they immediately came out and condemned the attacks in benghazi, there was a moment before the muslim brotherhood put out a statement on facebook. now we've heard from the president in brussels. tell me what president morsi has said. >> reporter: well, this has been an ongoing thing. after tuesday night, when the protesters stormed the embassy, we immediately heard from the foreign ministry theory in egypt, condemning the attack. but it was really the higher level of government remained quiet. finally the prime minister came out condemning the attack against the embassy, but the first message that president mohamed morsi issued was harsh condemnation against the film that sparked the demonstrations, but really had no harsh criticism of the protesters who broke out into the -- or the protesters that broke into the embassy. but today we're hearing a new tune. president mohamed morsi has finally come out with a statement and said that he strongly condemns those who broke into the embassy, saying these are not part of egyptians, these are not muslims. he also said that he is go
of the things they knew was that these groups were present in benghazi, they were well-organized, they have an infrastructure to them. they also knew of the presence of al qaeda sympathizers in the area, pockets of sympathizers. they also knew -- and we found this out from an intelligence source, there was an intelligence cable 48 hours before this attack took place that warned about the presence of this anti-muslim film on the internet. not only that, but that they had seen an up tick in the traffic visiting that site, that obviously this is a sign that this is gaining more popularity. cnn also found out that they had further indications that parts of this film were shown on egyptian television. that was according to an fbi memo that cnn was able to get a hold of. so all the clues were sort of there. now piecing them together was a different story. u.s. sources have told us, intelligence sources, that there was no actionable intelligence. as a matter of fact, the administration has been very open about coming out and saying that. so some clues were there, pulling them all together is a tou

.s. personnel have been evacuated from benghazi, libya. and very small skeletal staffs in tripoli and also yemen. but the u.s. is also looking at other countries. we have ten countries that you just mentioned where there are u.s. protests. clearly they're looking at sudan right now. right now they're not evacuating people. again, they're saying stay tuned. make sure you're registered with the embassy. right now everyone's relying on commercial travel to get out. the roads are open. everything's open, wolf. right now it's just seems to be localized just at these u.s. embassies and not kind of chaos spreading throughout the country. >> these are live pictures we're showing our viewers now from tahrir square in cairo. not very far from the u.s. embassy. you've been there, i've been there. it's only a few -- maybe a block away. but they have apparently established all sorts of barriers around the u.s. embassy. it's a huge embassy too. >> it's a huge embassy. it's like a complex, if you will. even as you have the setback in these reinforcements, they're asking the local government in the last couple

stormed the american consulate in benghazi. the main building of the consulate was quickly on fire. at least four of the americans are believed to have died from smoke inhalation. no one was shot. for more than five hours, after the attack, the state department could not confirm ambassador stevens' whereabouts. his body was not recovered for 12 hours. >> libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety and carried ambassador stevens' body to the hospital where we trajically learned that he had died. >> reporter: the president emphasized the libya attack was carried out by a rogue group of militants and won't damage the u.s. relationship with the libyan government which vowed its cooperation. a terror group affiliated with al qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack. officials believe it was a pre-planned attack, possibly timed to the september 11th anniversary. and not linked to an anti-muslim film that sparked a large, angry protest at the u.s. embassien cairo on tuesday. >> this is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths around the world. >> reporter
in benghazi at the u.s. consulate there. we've been in touch with the state department, again, they are not coming forthwith a confirmation yet. they do tell us there is one american not identified who has been killed after an attack by islamists. they were protesting an independent film made in the united states said to be critical of the muslim prophet, mohammed, and gotten some play on the super net in the arab world. that is rousing up feelings. according to reports, again, unconfirmed reports, the u.s. ambassador was killed when he and others were trying to get other staffers out of the consulate in benghazi, libya, which was under attack, which have, in fact, burning down. a rocket propelled grenade flying around the car that they were in as they were trying to get in in that very dramatic scene. folks, this followed yet another assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt yesterday. again, protesters there very angry about this very same film. they scaled the walls. they tore down and burned the u.s. flag there. they displayed a black flag with arabic writing. no injurie
